'The Goldfinch' Casts 'Dunkirk' Actor Aneurin Barnard in Major Role

Casting lineup is heating up

As we recently reported, an upcoming adaptation of Donna Tartt's Pulitzer-Prize winning novel The Goldfinchis underway.

 

The Fault in Our Stars leading man Ansel Elgort has already been cast for the lead and we've recently learned that he will be joined by hunky Welsh actor Aneurin Barnard!

 

Barnard has taken on the role of Boris Pavlikovsky, Theo's very confident partner-in-crime who plays a vital role in his adventures. Boris' character brings excitement, spontaneity, and drama to the story's atmosphere and Barnard will undoubtedly do him justice.

Barnard is known for his impressive performance as Gibson, the French soldier evading German forces during World War II in Dunkirk (2017). Distributed by Warner Bros. (who is also producing The Goldfinch), the film has received critical acclaim for a variety of its cinematic elements including performances, writing, direction, and cinematography. 

 

With Barnard joining the production, The Goldfinch is looking one step closer to production. Production is expected to be underway next year.
